like mitt romney and lose four years ago, the campaign never stops. even if you are obama and u.n. four years ago, the campaign america seems to be less about governing and more about campaigning. everything you do is about the campaign. does that make sense? >> i agree with you. the problem has to do with government. there is very little time to get things done. as soon as these guys are in washington, they are already thinking about the next campaign. the first 100 days -- and now, sometimes, it is the first 50 days before things began to change. no matter how the race turns out in two weeks, you will see people, certainly republicans if the president gets elected, heading to iowa before the end of the year. no joke. the question is when we begin to cover it. usually, out of respect, we try to wait. i would bet by one year from now, you will see lots of stories in iowa and new hampshire. tavis: that scares me. >> they have to get fund- raisers, nail down supporters, and the earlier it begins, the more pressure there is on people to do it. if romney loses, you will see a wide open appe

are completely irrelevant. governor romney has changed his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who will say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that. so it's hard to know, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the chances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running for president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example of what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was

has changed. >> expanding the debate. as president obama and mitt romney face off for the last time before the general election, we break the sound barrier by including third-party candidates jill stein and rocky anderson into the debate. >> republican and democratic parties may have some differences, but they have both morphed into a militarist, anti- democratic course that betrays the most basic and civil human- rights. >> democratic and republican establishments continue to inflict austerity on the american people while they continue squandering trillions of dollars on wars for oil, wall street bailouts, tax breaks for the wealthy, an enormous private health insurance waste. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney met for their third and final debate monday night before the general election two weeks from today. with the focus on foreign policy, both candidates shared wide agreement on issues including support for the israeli government, the with

strategists for barack obama and mitt romney say early voting could be' decisive factor in the election. obama became the first president to vote early. he urged his supporters to exercise their rights before election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see th
